Sunny Days At Whitchurch

Whitchurch Lift Bridge

Moored At The Whitchurch Arm

We only travelled short distance as we wanted to moor on the Whitchurch Arm. We are going slowly onwards towards Llangollen Wharf where we have a winter mooring booked. The nights are starting to get darker earlier and much colder and the fire's been lit most evenings as it keeps the boat lovely and cosy all night without the noise of central heating. It also helps keep the level of condensation down.

The days have been lovely and sunny and Ben and I have had some pleasant walks and discovered where some of the footpaths end up. Lots of boats on the move this weekend and we've seen loads of dogs with their owners. It must be the place to walk the dog on Sunday afternoon! The Whitchurch Waterway Trust has great plans to restore the Arm further into the town - let's hope it happens in the not too distant future.
Yesterday we left Ben the dog looking after the boat and walked into Whitchurch for a look around. Quite a pretty little town with lots of interesting old buildings. We even found a pet shop as we needed to take Ben back a big hide bone as he'd eaten every crap of the one he had. We also did a Tesco shop and got a taxi back as we didn't fancy a twenty minute walk with heavy bags.
